Event Synopsis:

Although your organization may have incorporated as a nonprofit corporation and obtained tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, many states require an additional registration to solicit contributions from their residents. Complying with the annual registration requirements of 40 different states can both challenges and opportunities for organizations. However, failure to register or file the necessary annual financial reports prior to soliciting contributions may subject the organization and it leaders to penalties and negative publicity.
